On Friday, January 15th, 2021, thirty-six teenagers devoted their evening to competing in a Gaming For Good competition, hosted by Prairie STEM. They played Fortnite in teams of two and all chose their favorite charity before the competition began. Congratulations to the top 3 winners of that competition:
Third Place went to team Lethal who donated $50 to Breast Cancer Research, team Janitors took second place donating $100 to St. Jude’s Hospital, and the winner of the night was team Monkey Pajamas donating $150 to Alzheimer’s. Great job everyone!
A special thank you to our shoutcasters, Will and Rohs, Tre, Jayden and Staremaster1907, TTV.Decepticoop and A_Chatter, some of which are Scott Scholars from UNO. Their contributions to the tournament completed the whole experience for the participants and spectators. Two of our streamers for the evening were and Eldritch and TTV.Decepticoop. You both did an amazing job! Thank you so much!
It is rewarding to see so many young people competing to give back to their community. When you hear them speak before the tournaments, they are all truly excited about donating to their cause. Many of them have a personal reason for choosing their particular charity. All participants can be should feel very good about themselves for competing in these tournaments, whether they win or lose. You are working to make a difference!
